March 30, 2006
Do you live or work in the District of Columbia? If so, tell us about the District's biggest problems and how you think they should be solved.
To get you thinking, we're putting real prize money on the table.
The best idea will receive $5,000, the second-best $2,500, and the third-best $1,000--all sponsored by the June and John Hechinger Family Trusts and donors to the Community Foundation for the National Capital Region.
You have until May 5 at 11:59 EST to send us your ideas.
Visit www.solvingDCproblems.org to learn more.
Who will pick the best ideas? You will! You will have the chance to vote online to select the three best ideas from 20 finalists.
And the three winners will get to present their ideas to the Mayoral candidates at a forum in June.
We will compile your great ideas and present them to the public, government officials, and candidates running in the District's 2006 elections.
This is your chance to have city leaders listen to how you think the city should be run, and to infuse the elections this year with the issues that matter most to you.
Make sure your voice is heard!
